Bica Gin | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 42º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Rosemary, Corn husks, Camomile, Cinnaon, Thistle, Coriander Seed, Orange blosoom, Lily root, Lemon verbena, Honey, Juniper.

Brief Description
Bica Gin was born after 2 years of extensive experiments. It is in the Alentejo that many of the botanicals for this Gin with an Alentejan heart are found. The orange and lemon peels, harvested in Herdade do Vale, the honey and the corn husks, bought from small local producers, and the rosemary which grows wild all around are just some examples. The botanical palette has the Alentejo at its heart but the world in its sights, with its coriander seeds, cinnamon, lemon verbena, camomile, orange blossom, thistle, lily root and juniper, which comes from Macedonia.
Respecting the intrinsic characteristics of each botanical, the process of maceration is done using different times and methods for each, while always using a wheat and rice based alcohol. This never takes more than 24 hours, at the end of which, distillation begins in the still which was especially developed for Bica Gin, with 500 litre capacity, and a bain marie heated by wood burner.
On the nose, Bica Gin is pretty smooth, with herbal touches in which the rosemary is immediately detectable. Less apparent, but still noticeable are the citrus notes, and cinnamon, conferring warmth and comfort.
In the mouth, the smoothness of the alcohol shows itself. Piquant touches punctuate the warmth from the spices and the more herbal side of Bica Gin. The mouth is extremely long and continues to develops until the juniper and the sweetness of the orange appear together, in harmony.

Friday | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Cardamom, gaga grape vine leaf, orange blossom, tropical fruit and juniper.

Brief Description
Friday Chic Gin was born in the heart of the Bairrada region - North of Portugal - in a distillery with many years of experience in the production of the best sparkling made in Portugal.
The vine leaf from the Baga grape - variety found in this region - enters the distillation process adding an astringent touch to the Gin. Although unnoticeable is of utmost importance since it is the counterpoint to the sweetest aromas of orange blossom and tropical fruit.
The breathe feeling is extremely pleasant. The alcohol taste is very soft and the fragrant notes of ripe fruit and floral touch invite to a deeper inhalation. In the mouth, the softness, sweet and fruity touch of this Gin is confirmed. The juniper is less noticeable than in most Gins which makes Friday extremely soft.
